Quite simple, if Venus rises before the Sun, she is a morning star, and if she sets after the Sun she is an evening star.
In many ancient cultures the Morning and Evening stars of Venus were even given different names and even seen as two quite separate embodiments. In the ancient Mayan culture the warring twin brothers — Quetzalcoatl, the morning star and — Xolotl, the darker personification, was the evening star, both 2 seperate apparitions of Venus.

As the table above suggests finding out what type of Venus you have by phase, can be like all astrology, further enlightening. Adding the rest comes from knowing one cycle well, as mentioned above. The easiest way to work out a phase in a cycle is by counting the days after a Venus Star Point is made. You will see by the table below, how many days are between each phase and this varies slightly over each cycle, and especially for the morning or evening rise of Venus, which can depend on latitude and time and place of evening of appearance.
Use the image above , to keep track of the keypoints in the coming cycle:. There has been some debate in our community over the years as to where the cycle of Venus actually begins. The sky watcher shamanic astrologers would say that the cycle begins with the heliacal rising of Venus as she rises as the morning star in the east. Traditionalist astrologers would say, that the cycle begins with Venus rising as an evening star in the west.
The reasoning for the latter is that Venus at this part of her cycle is low in the sky, dim, is ascending and from here gains in light, as she also appears like the Moon does when new, in the western evening sky! There a a few things to consider here, with both of the above viewpoints. Yet with the shamanic viewpoint and the visual sky gaining importance in our astrology circles this is indeed a practice that I see as important to be followed and even encouraged as it teaches us so much more about the living sky.
Yet it is much easier and direct to work out phases and co-ordinate timing by using the exact Star Point. The Moon orbits the Earth and Venus orbits the Sun. I like the idea that one phase ends as another begins, giving more flow to the never ending divine circle of life. It will be most significant for those with planets, points, or angles, close, or square to these degrees.

A pivotal time for all with or without direct chart contact, as the nodal axis shows great shifts in direction, opposite Uranus we are all heading for change in particular areas of life. Where may we need to either dive deeper or try and disentangle as we may have already gone in too deep? There is an intense preciousness about this time, to hold on , or let go? To love or risk the potential to lose forever! After max elongation as morning star, she has the long journey of moving on, moving on with the mission, whatever it may be, as a trine to the nodes confirms where you are headed.
What happened there 4 years back from August — back in August that gives you some information of what developed at this time? Heading to the outer conjunction can quite often be an extremely overwhelming time. A planet moving at their fastest, especially with Venus and Mercury, can be just as, or more confronting than the retrograde, so be prepared. Look at that now already, as the retrograde in Scorpio culminates, for as we claim our wings in the depths of Scorpio, we are going to want to fly!
This outer conjunction point is conjunct Mars and quincunx Pluto, just to give us all some extra drive to push through. In Scorpio Venus wants us to dive deep, in Leo Venus wants to shine with potency and creation and in Gemini to circulate and navigate further missions.
The magic is in your hands. To use this cycle, by reflecting on the past, we activate each phase with purpose and growth and mostly by looking ahead. We know there is nothing like astrology to connect us to the past, present and future, and there is nothing like the Venus star and the Venus cycle, the grand pentagon and the magic pentacle to keep our astrology truly alive and activated.

See how at every keypoint she synthesises and brings together the essence of the 5 months before and the 5 months after each star point is made.
